Seminars and lectures at IAS

The Institute for Analytical Sociology, IAS, arranges research seminars every week on the topics of analytical sociology and computational social science.

The topics discussed often focus on the core areas of IAS – analytical sociology, organizational dynamics, segregation dynamics, and cultural dynamics. For the first time, we also hold the International Roundtable on Computational Social Science with presentations of leading international CSS scholars.

Our events are open to everyone and we very much look forward to seeing you at one of our events!

Venue: Zoom. Please contact Madelene Töpfer, madelene.topfer@liu.se, for Zoom link.
